Boone, Zug to sign at Ephrata Lions show
The Ephrata Lions Club is sponsoring its 32nd annual Sports Card Show and Auction on Saturday, March 26 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Ephrata Recreation Center (130 South Academy Dr., Ephrata, near the intersection of routes US 322 and PA 272). Approximately 40 sports memorabilia dealers will be present to buy and sell baseball cards and other sports-related items. Between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., former Philadelphia Phillies catcher Bob Boone will sign autographs for attendees purchasing tickets.
Bob Boone appears courtesy of the Ephrata National Bank and the Ephrata Lions Club. In addition, former Manheim Central and Penn State receiver Graham Zug will appear, as well as representatives from the Lancaster Barnstormers (of the Atlantic League, an independent professional baseball league) will be present throughout the day. Admission to the show is $3 for adults, $1 for children under 12. Autograph tickets are $10 each, with a limit of five per paid admission. Only 400 autograph tickets will be sold.
Additional autographs will be sold if time permits. No mail orders will be accepted, and there are no advanced ticket sales. Attendees may bring their own items to be autographed, or items may be purchased from dealers or from the Ephrata Lions Club. A sports memorabilia auction will begin at approximately 2:30 p.m. Over 260 items will be auctioned, including valuable individual sports cards, complete card sets, sports publications, photographs, bobbin’ heads, figurines, baseballs, and other souvenirs.
